About Houla

After the inception of Cause for Paws, Houla Entertainment started by bringing my love of music and animals together. I had recruited numerous artists to perform at benefits to raise money for rescues and to bring awareness for animal rights and education. After working with artists for several years, I finally decided to work full time in the business after one of my artists kept telling me “you missed your calling in bookings bands.” My consideration to leave the corporate world was easy and Houla Entertainment was born.

The name Houla is named for one of my dogs, Isla, who is a Catahoula Leopard Dog. I thought this would be a great way to recognize one of my loves, my dog. I continue to work with rescues by transporting dogs in need and bringing awareness and education for breed discrimination and BSL.

Houla Entertainment has grown considerably since its inception yet we continue to maintain personalized service with our clients, venues, and artists alike. We would love the opportunity to prove our dedication to what we do and work with you in booking your next event.
